Wed 1st Jul: SURVEY. M 5 5. Day walk, Neuram Creek Tributary, D’Aguilar NP (Mt Mee section). About 10km along tracks and creek. Includes waterfalls and rock pools with potential for getting wet.

Morning tea at Spring Mountain.  Then we walk out to the balancing rock, then head back and try and find this ridge that will take us off track down to the creek.  Lunch there somewhere (and if I can't find this off track down the ridge then back the same way we came in:).  Cross over creek and back on to the trail to our cars by 3ish.  Good thing it is school holidays so traffic will be easier getting out of Greenbank.
